One of L.A. Creek Freak’s perenial favorite posts is our earlier coverage of the Cheong Gye Cheon stream project in downtown Seoul, South Korea. It’s an impressive project where a visionary mayor lead the charge to remove a freeway in order to daylight the historic creek where the city of Seoul began. Sounds familiar, no?
My good friend Paul is living is Seoul and sends these photos. This excellent project can serve as an example to L.A.’s Creek Freaks about the transformative power of creek daylighting and river revitalization.
To read more about and see more photos of the Cheong Gye Cheon project, please go to L.A. Creek Freak’s earlier article Daylighting in the Heart of Seoul: The Cheong Gye Cheon Project. (All photos by Paul Bournhonesque – also read his feature-length comments on the earlier post.)
[Lastly, some thrilling alternate spellings of Cheong Gye Cheon, so persnickety exacting computer searches can find us: Cheongyecheon, Cheonggyecheon, Cheonggyecheong, Cheongyecheong, Cheong Gye Cheong ]
